REFLECTIONS (CARE ENOUGH) ~ BY MARIAH CAREY
"Reflections (Care Enough)" is a song written and produced by American singer Mariah Carey and Philippe Pierre for Carey's eighth studio album, Glitter. The ballad has Carey, in character as Billie Frank in the film Glitter, reflecting on how her mother didn't "care enough" for her. The song is also featured on Carey's 2009 compilation album, The Ballads. "Reflections (Care Enough)" was released as the album's fourth single in late 2001, but wasn't promoted in the United States. Because of contractual obligations, Sony Music Entertainment, Carey's former record label and the international distributor of the Glitter soundtrack released a CD single for "Reflections (Care Enough)" only in Japan. A clip from the film Glitter in which Carey (as Billie Frank) performs the song in her apartment right after her character finishes writing it (the song is Frank's first attempt at songwriting) was used in Asia as a teaser for the film.
